construction workers back to work. why? it would have been an increase in taxes, not for most people, but for those who make a million dollars or more. making the investments in education, making the investments in research, and we make those investments together and build a future. that is what it will take over the long run to build a stronger future here in western massachusetts, all across the commonwealth, and all across the country. >> thank you. before i start, i want to thank the mayor for your endorsement and support. thank you both for coming. this is actually about jobs and economy. the whole race is about that. we held one of our first jobs fares here because we want to connect people with jobs. when you put a title on a bill in washington that says jobs bill, you have to read the bill. those bills in particular were rejected in a bipartisan manner, and that means democrats and republicans recognize that by taking for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the best answer is
got to the budget surplus. i did not vote for the war or the tax cuts for the rich. with the giveaways to the drug companies that blow a hole in the budget. we had the biggest budget surplus to the biggest budget deficit in 2008. >> so you believe the senate is doing their job? >> i think that they did the right thing in the budget control act. this includes revenue and going after these tax loopholes. the politicians who signed the pledge to the lobbyists grover norquist -- >> i will give you 60 seconds to respond. >> sitting around your kitchen tables you can't go three months without managing your finances. you can't go three weeks without managing the budget for your small business. but he and other career politicians have gone three years since they passed a budget. he talks about the budget control act. if you are watching this, think for a second. do you have the budget control act in your small business? this is washington speak. we manage our small business with the budget. but these politicians to think that they can live by different set of rules. after y

literally decades of research trying to lower at the extent to which measures like an earned income tax credit and temporary assistance for needy families, medicaid and education programs he will tell me if he is right. and their impact on people's lives. it is far from sucking the life out of them. i would argue that not only do these provisions critically offset multiple failures embed, did they provide people with the opportunities they need to achieve the vocation and faith that absence this support there are have a much harder time and cheating. i want to reflect on michael harrington and how big is the current economic divide and as a different now versus when he broke the other america. the economic divide is much lighter now than it was then. the most recent year was 2007. 23% of income accrued to the top 1%. back in the early '60s, that was 10%. he was writing about an economic divide where 10% occurred tuesday top 1%. hthe growth of inequality is a major factor of understanding in the quality. this is a dynamic story. it has great barrington area of agreement between charles a
are going to ballots at. we need stability in taxes and regulations, and number 4 we need an energy policy like we have done in north dakota. if we support energy, we can reignite america's engine, at the energy independence, national security, job security, and that is what we need to do. >> is interesting what congressman berg says. if you look at the time he served in the legislature, it is roughly equivalent, 4000 percen $. quit talking about harry reid or what ever is. i was not in the senate. i think it is atrocious we do not have a budget. that is the reason we do not have a budget is because both political parties refused to sit down and refuse to solve the problems. there is excellent documents out there, but i believe we have need a balanced budget amendment because the and the way congress will balance the budget is that they have to. that is the path forward for our people and for our country. we need to be strategic. congressman berg voted for sequestration, a disaster, a disaster for defense and jobs trip we need to do everything we can to do this the right way, and that is t
provide more and more tax benefit to the state. that is where the state should step aside and we could have a uniform regulatory process, lower fees. >> thank you. >> i agree with the senator that public safety is one of the few, in my opinion that the government should have control over in our lives. but i wonder why the senator is a support of the trust act that senator amiano supported that tried to prevent the state from returning illegal aliens who commit serious crimes including gang violence from being deported from this country, that is a public safety issue that all of us who live in san francisco have to deal with every day. so i really question whether one can square one of those statements with the other. i believe in the natural law from john stewart mill and other philosophers that our rights do not flow from the government, the government's rights and the government's rights flow from the citizens. and so the government should have as limited a scope as possible, not and interfere with business and not interfere with our privacy and not spy on us and generally keep the p
statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the recount laws in the state of new hampshire. is it possible that there could be a recount in this state and what are the rules for that? guest: we have specific rules for the state. we have a fine secretary of state, bill gardner, quite experienced in this. he's the person who has been the keeper of the flame for the new hampshire primary. we had a famous account here in the late '70's with senator john durken who recently passed away. frankly, i don't see it coming down to that. we will see what happens on tuesday. i think other states may be more likely to have a recount and new hampshire. host: do you have voter id laws? guest: yes, and there's some controversy. the legislature passed a voter -- a new voter law that required peopl
as a result of tax cuts the state could not afford that the prior governor put on the credit cards. we need to provide significantly more funding not only through k-12 education which is the birth right of every child to be able to get a quality public education in my opinion and to be able to pursue the dream of a higher education and that is getting further and further out of the reach of children in california because the state does not support education. we need funding, we need to spend it on education. >> so, therefore, do you think that community colleges should perhaps change their focus? one idea is to focus on retraining unemployed workers and upgrading skills for new jobs. do you feel that the state should encourage this? and how? >> if you are making reference to the challenges facing the san francisco community college at this time, i think that there are going to be some very painful and although, necessary, redirection of focus. we have been providing a lot of classes, non-credit classes and classes that don't need to further training for new employment. or for the opportunit
? tax deductions that are -- >> have we measured that? we certainly realize that it lowers the cost. >> right. >> and that's why we pursued a third-party for our development of the sunset solar project. >> okay. >> and didn't fund it ourselves. i can't recall off the top of my head, maybe you do, todd, what the -- mr. reedstrom, what the financial impact of that was for us. >> it was pretty significant. by way of comparison, the tax credit, tax credit financing that we successfully undertook for current sunset solar brought the average cost per kilowatt hour down to 23-1/2 cents. that compares to average costs of our hydro system. all the costs included of about 9 cents. so, without the tax credit federal financing as well as the state programs, it would have been over 30 cents kilowatt hour. >> you need to take credit for that. >> we have a line item -- >> that's why i try to raise some of these issues because when you and the work that this agency has been doing, i am so proud of the fact that the cost saving that ultimately go to the rate payer, we need to talk about. if we're go
of the day which is revenue. we have seen our revenue cut significantly by taxes that arnold schwarzenegger cut his first day in office. we have a depoll that prop is trying to refill it. we should not have to do it at the ballot box when out of 40 state senators 14 have more power than 26. 14 can veto when 26 want. i tell fifth graders that and they say that is not democracy that is not possible. that is exactly the problem, we don't have democracy on all issues, revenue-related in the legislature, let the majority party do its job and if the voters don't like what the majority party is doing in no one jerry man dered districts change who is in power, it is call democracy. >> continuing on the theme of democracy, and how people engage with their elected officials and with government generally, clearly civic engagement is critical for a safe, strong and a vibrant state and i am curious what you have done and what you will do to encourage appropriate participation in democracy. >> i think that we could probably most simply define participation and democracy aside from community hearings and
into the rainy day fund and the same time reduce taxes. that has been the biggest job creator in ohio that we have seen a in the nation. i think these programs do work. i think the governors are leading the change efforts in this country and have to continue to do that. the federal government has been an impediment regulations in the have prohibited them from trading jobs that are necessary in this country to push our economy and to also improve the economy over where it has been over the last four years. host: we have been talking about the jobs numbers that are coming out today. here are the october numbers. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8% from september. in issuing 171,000 jobs added in october. this is according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick and it was a down tick the month before, and but unemployment is basically staying around 8%. if you count the people who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are un
californians to support a tax hike. governor brown spent this week campaigning nonstop for prop 30 which would raise sales tax a quarter cent and state income taxes on the rich. and as we speak, some of your neighbors are joining the fight. cbs 5 reporter aiolis is a hairington is in oakland where democrats have a phone bank to urge voters to vote yes on prop 30 and no on prop 32. >> reporter: as november 6th approaches volunteers are making a final push to get people to the polls. inside the democratic party headquarters here in oakland volunteers are taking part in the statewide day of action and pope bank. on the phones since 10:00 a.m. calling democrats across the state asking them to vote yes on prop 30 and no on prop 32. prop 32 would ban unions from using payroll deducted found for political -- funds for political purposes. prop 30 hikes the state sales tax by a quarter cent. the 30 doesn't pass schools and colleges face $6 billion in cuts. governor brown has been traveling across the state shoring up support but recent polls show that -- polls show that support is fading. now there's 4
can well afford to pay higher taxes. i will never understand how democrat and republican, especially republican, i will never understand how or and middle-class people can vote against their pocketbooks and the cheerleaders for lower taxes for wealthy people. host: that is ron in new york. if you could to the front page of the indianapolis star, piloting the senate race there. they said results are flawed. they indicate laws wants a toss up is now a double digit lead for his opponent. most significantly, women voters are driving the divide, according to the new poll. joe donnelly with 47% support. richard murdock support. and the libertarian getting about 6% of that support. silver like indiana. paul on our line for republicans. good morning. caller: good morning. host: your reactions on what is going on in your state? caller: our country was built on a religious freedom and also, in our old west -- and in the history of becoming a free country, a lot of our beliefs were made of on the bible. they say life begins at conception. and have been hearing democrats talk about rich people.
, that's a more efficient use of tax dollars. >> cenk: michael there is no such republican plan. the only plan that exists is to cut fema. there is no plan to add money to the local levels. >> i'm not here to defend that. or argue it. i'm here to tell you from -- yeah, i'm a republican and yes i'm a partisan. here's how it really works and what we really ought to be doing. >> cenk: michael one last thing. if you're a voter throughout and you're worried about these disasters and they seem to be happening at a quicker pace now and one guy seems to have handled things fairly well and says i'm going to continue to do that and another guy says i don't really even believe in fema at the federal. >> eliot: and i don't have a plan to make anything better at the state or local. >> eliot: so good luck to you. as a voter which guy would you go for? >> look, i don't think that romney's rhetoric really is that. he may think that we need more efficiently or spend their money and i think we should. i think to the extent we c
said it's going to be a nail baiter. there are signs for sup or thers of the tax plan. vote yes on 30. vote yes. vote yes on 30. >> vote yes on 30. >> governor brown walked into his appearance without taking kbez the new numbers. final days of the campaign, he's all about making his case for a temporary sales tax increase. and a longer hike on income taxes for those making over a quarter kblinl per year. >> those who have done the best can't they help us in california's time of need? >> without $6 billion brown warned the trigger cuts already in the budget will take that amount out of the funding for schools. >> money into schools and colleges, into the california dream, or out. in or out? yes or no? >>sfa showing more californians saying question. -- yes. 14% undecided. this pollster runs the field poll. >> all the governor sneedz another to% or 3% and this would pass. i think chances are better than anything. >> the former chair of the state republican part redoesn't think so. >> in this situation this close to election and belo >>> this election day san francisco voters will be as
been financing this paycheck deduction measure and financing the anti-jerry brown tax measure, though he apparently didn't think he was. that's another story. and yet tom, the hedge fund manager, financing prop 39, i think that's the only one that looks safe at this point. and up got to wonder, i mean, what is it they want? do they see a civic duty, do they see a political future for them? tom, they wonder what he's going to do. but jerry brown is a guy who has been vexed by the munger family. in this race. right? molly munger's prop 38 could be drawing support away from him and her brother charlie munger is financing the campaign apparently to kill his tax measure. >> belva: did one of them put more money in this week? >> the brother, charles, into this political action committee called the small business action committee. i'm not sure there are any small businesses involved in it. that's been fueling this no on 30, yes on 32 mix. this is a tremendous amount of money. and i don't think any of us who watch california politics, the folks there in the studio or me, are surprised this is
's jana katsuyama is live now in lafayette and tells us opponents of the tax measure are at work to get out the vote, jana. >> reporter: those teachers and governor brown are campaigning hard. but a recent poll show support slipping. today we found people on both sides of this issues battling for both. >> reporter: in contra costa county teachers stood on street corners for hours tonight urging drivers to support proposition 30. these teachers say if prop 30 does not pass, schools will have to cut costs. >> we're talking about 11 fewer days to teach the math, science, reading and language arts that is really important for our students. >> i would say this is about the worse i've seen. or it will be if this doesn't pass. >> reporter: governor brown put proposition 30 on the ballot to raise $6 billion that has been allocated this year for csu budgets. it would also increase the state's sales tax. the tax increase would not apply to gasoline or food. >> no on proposition 30, thank you for voting. >> the funding isn't guaranteed to go to the schools. my biggist concern is giving everyone mo
reduced taxes, and eliminate the death tax in ohio. the has been the biggest job trend in ohio and anywhere else in the nation. i think the governors are leading the change effort in this country, and have to continue to do that. but the federal government has been an impediment, in many cases, through its regulations and its headwinds. many in the state have predicted them from creating the jobs necessary in this country to push our economy and improve the economy over the next four years. host: breaking news this morning. we have been talking about the jobs numbers coming out today. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are
of december. we have tax cuts that are about to expire, many of them, and we also have, like you were just talking about the trillion sequester cuts. all these things are happening by the end of the year. what do you think congress should do, do you feel like they should leave everything as is? or do you think, do you have any ideas that congress should put in place that you will put forward when you guys go back in next week? >> yeah, i think that the best way to talk about the tax rates is they're what we've had for 10 years. businesses have made their plans predicated on a tax rate. i don't think we should increase the tax rates on anybody. i don't care if you're rich, middle class or poor. we shouldn't divide up people. we should divide people into two sectors. private sector, public sector. i don't want to grow the public sector, i want to grow the private sector. so that means means, leaving as much money in the private sector as possible. i don't want to tax anybody any more to take any money out of the private sector. why? because that's where jobs have created. we've tried this be
banks, that's not change. >> and we need real change. >> another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy, that's not change. >> president obama has tried to convince folks that these last four years have been a success. >> by the way, when you try to change the facts just because they're inconvenient to your campaign, that's definitely not change. >> he wants to take all the ideas from the first term, you know, the stimulus, the borrowing, obama care, all the rest, and then go back and do it all over again. >> you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. >> we're four days away from a fresh start, four days away from the first day of a new beginning. >> you know that i'll fight for you and your family every single day as hard as i know how. you know that. >> we've got joy. >> i was going to answer that. >> joy reid. my new friend and my old friend. thank you both for joining us. everybody knows the stakes are enormous. it is how people react over the weekend. that's signals aren't just where they're at, they're being radiated on the nigh

visit in one week. prop 30 asks voters to approve temporary tax hike on incomes over a quarter of a million dollars a year. sales tax hike for the next four years. brown says the revenue will prevent six billion dollars in cuts to state funded schools. the latest numbers show prop 30 support dropping since september. >>> president obama dives back into campaigning after three days immersed in leading response to sandy. president obama and mitt romney are locked in a tight contest both campaigns predicting victory. >> reporter: the action picks up again with both on the trail. president obama visits wisconsin, nevada and colorado for his first campaign event since sandy hit. mitt romney will be in virginia today he stumped in florida wednesday and never criticized the president. >> we can't go on the road we are on and change course if we keep on attacking each other. we have to come together and get america on track again. >> reporter: the race is still a dead heat. poll shows candidates tied among likely voters at 49%. that same poll found americans rate president obama's resp
it depends on our feature. >> in june we did not know results of the tax for two weeks. and lost by less than 1%. >> sorry, thank you very much. >> and a new poll shows public support for governor brown's tax measure remains below 50%, just five days where the election. the poll shows prop 30 has 48% support from likely voters. 38% opposed. director of the poll says there appears to be enough undecided voters to swing prop 30 to a victory on election day. coming up governor brown visit san francisco to drum up support from those still undecided on how they'll vote. >> well, there is makeup work to do for students in san francisco public schools. rourdz indicate plenty of students turned out. that is compared to raft week, middle school attendance down about 11%. grade schoolers down about three and a half percent. a chance to see history. >> it's right. >> and still to come good and bad of the california commute. why you can -- where you can find the best drivers in the nation. >> sergio romo struck a pose making a statement with the tee shirt he wore during world series celebrations yesterda
political dues, and is trying to defeat prop 30. governor brown's tax hike measure. this is on top of a mysterious $11 million donation from arizona last week. the governor is rallying to find out who is behind the money. political reporter grace lee shows us how he is taking his fight from the capitol to the courtroom. >> these shadowy figures, they say they're from arizona, but from all i know, they might be from hillsboro, or the grand kaman i can't think. i don't know where these people are from, because they're hiding. they're wearing masks. remember the people like to run around in hoods because they don't want people to see who the hell they are. well the state of california is going to court to unmask these people. >> strong words from governor brown today at the n.a.a.c.p. convention. he later clarified that he didn't necessarily mean to refer to the ku klux klan. >> no. what it is when people do things, sometimes they don't want to be exposed for what they're doing. and this arizona organization says they're in business for transparency. and here they're not willing to co
, we've also got to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office because, as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow the nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. and i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense agenda that says, when we educate a poor child, we'll a. be better off we need a vision that says we don't just look out for yourself. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations. and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election's all.
, the fiscal cliffs. when we get a solid policies that's predictable the economy grows. and when we have tax reform we get tax rate downs that estimate-- stimulates incentives to hire people t really is basic economics. that why this is tragic. applying basic economie economies-- economics we could do a lot better. >> brown: austan goolsbee, dow want to comment on what the president you work for has done. >> i will just say is we can agree on the basic economics but i think professor taylor has his history a little backward on that. in the 1990s bill clinton raised exactly the high income tax rates that barack obama wants to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they actually added more than 1 million fewer private sector jobs if george bush's first term than president obama has under his first term so i really do not think that the basic economics or the history says that just going back to deregulation and high rate-- high income rate cuts is the thing that leads to growth. >> brown:
